At the age of 23, after my third major surgery, I was diagnosed with endometriosis. I suffered with chronic pelvic, back and leg pain. On my journey to feel well, I saw approximately 20 different doctors, had 8 surgeries and tried many different medications to help me cope with the pain. While I did receive some relief after each procedure, the relief from pain and symptoms was temporary and lasted no more than a few months. Each time, the pain came back worse and worse.
Finally, in 2008, I began seeing a holistic health practitioner. As part of my treatment, she helped me find and begin eating the right foods for my body. Within three months of making simple changes to my diet, I was pain free. I began practicing yoga and meditating and developed a spiritual practice that helps me feel balanced and connected physically, emotionally and spiritually. I now feel better and have more energy and am happier than ever before in my life. I realize though, that health and happiness are a journey, not a destination but I am happy to finally be on the right path!
It is my goal and passion to help others discover their own path to health and happiness by naturally nourishing their physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
